What is it about?
The linear and mass attenuation coefficients of raw Rhizophora spp. wood, binderless particleboard, and Perspex were measured at gamma ray energies of 59.54, 88.0, and 356 keV. Results were compared with the theoretical values of water calculated using the XCOM program. The mass attenuation coefficients of binderless particleboard and water showed good agreement Moreover, Rhizophora spp. binderless particleboard was compared with water in terms of effective atomic number (Zeff), and a close match was noticed.

Why is it important?
The photon interaction of binderless Rhizophora spp. in a range of 59–356 keV were not yet investigated. This work aimed to confirm that binderless Rhizophora spp. particleboard has been potential as a phantom material in a range of photon energies. And give the researchers the idea of using this material in medical physics applications more in high photon energies.
